Re: A Monochrom(e) Oly?

You are of course quite correct to say that capturing the original colours gives greater flexibility in the B&W conversion. And it seems that Steve (Ricoh) and Alf are made of sterner stuff than me in being able to pre-visualise the results they want. For me, it is that extra flexibility which seems to affect the kind of photos I take. If I know that the camera only turn the subject into B&W, I take photos that work in B&W. If I know it can do colour it will affect how I shoot the subject - and despite knowing that this happens I don't seem to be able to over-ride it.

As somebody said in another thread - horses for courses
